La Casa Pucha, Santiago de Cali, Colombia
Santiago de Cali, or simply Cali for the locals, is “the only major Colombian city with access to the Pacific Coast, [..] is the main urban and economic centre in southwest Colombia, and has one of the fastest-growing economies in the country“, yet different pace than New York. Anita Calero, a New York based photogrpaher, has origins from Cali so found this place to disconnect with her demanding environment from New York.
The house resides in a nearby hill 10 minute drive from the centre of the city, and it was re-designed from the beginning. Definetely has Calero’s touch picking Scandinavian furniture, antique artefacts from New York and very interesting books about photography and architecture. The house is 130 sq.m. long and the ceilings are as high as 5 meters giving enough height for one to breath. The result is astonishing. Enjoy.
